Mom's And Daughters

I love these doing these family shoots with the kids.  They are such a ball of energy you can't help but have fun being young again :)!  Running through the park, throwing leaves in the air, and playing peek-a-boo; oh yeah, and snapping a few pics along the way ;).  Here are my favs from my recent family portrait session with these fun gals.

----------------->Check out the SLIDESHOW for more <-----------------

It was about 30 degrees out, teeth were chattering and cheeks were rosey.  But we had plenty-o-smiles :)! Isn't she a cutey?!! She wanted to show me how high she could go on the swings.  Ok missey, show me what you got! lol "Higher, higher" they both yelled, lol. She tried showing me how to do this neat little trick with her tongue.  I still didn't do it right, but they are both pro's lol. I just loved her sneakers! I mean talk about GIRL POWER!! lol Playing in the leaves is just so irresistibly fun so mom had to join in!  I was tempted to but that would've been just weird.  Could you imagine...? "Why is our photographer playing in the leaves, shouldn't she be taking our picture?!!" lol. Fun, fun fun times with this lively bunch!  Thanks for braving the cold with me.  Santa will undoubtedly reward you for your awesome-ness :)! Don't forget to see their slideshow for more photos :)!

Addison + Mom + Dad

I hope you all are having a great Monday so far.  Over the weekend, I had the incredibly humbling fortune to spend some quality time with my family; my brother, his wife, and son.  Being around my nephew and seeing how big he had gotten in the last 6 years had amazed me.  He is his own person and has developed a personality that brings a smile to my face.  It made me think back to when he was just a little boy and my muse, as I had taken hundreds of pictures of him as he grew up.  I hope to share some of those photos I had taken back in 2005 with you really soon but for now, I want to show you the little one that helped me see how precious family memories can really be; sweet Addison. Sweet belly kisses :). Addison was just as much fun asleep as she was awake. Addison you are so very loved... Mom, Dad, and Addison were absolutely amazing for this shoot.  A special thank you to them for inviting me into their home to capture their journey with their beautiful new daughter.  Love you guys! See Beauty... Ariane
